Their voice changes so it's bleedingly obvious that they're foreign.
- Maybe it's so non-English speakers can clue in better, or because humans are wired to notice changes in accent even if we may miss the clue in the storyline (e.g. find it hard to concentrate on plots, etc).
Can't say I've ever minded it, when I do notice it. Bad guy turns out to be foreign bad guy with accompanying change in accent? I accept and keep enjoying the show. It's just television, not worth getting annoyed about or reading too much into. Stick to books, if spoken accents distract you too much.... :-)

PS- am curious- why do you say Poirot "switch[es] to a clumsy foreign accent just for funsies"? He speaks with an accent all the time, as far as I know? No putting-on of a foreign accent that I'm aware of.
